It’s pizza time..♥

Hey!

So as you can read from the title we made some pizza quite long time ago. I don’t know how I haven’t done this post earlier but hopefully I’m here now to do that for you guys. It was easy to do so I believe in you. It’s not too hard to do! But yeah, so I think I haven’t more to say so let’s get into the pizza (♥♥♥) recipe.

What you will need:

Pizza Dough:

– 25 grams of dry yeast

– 2 desilitres of water

– 1/2 teaspoon of salt

– 1/2 desilitres of butter

– 5 desilitres of flour

1. Add the yeast in little pieces to warm water.

2. After that add the other ingredients to the bowl and mix them all together. The best way to mix the dough is that you do it by your hands.

3. Let the dough rest in a warm place until it’s double in size.

4. Roll the dough for a circle on a floured table so it’s not gonna stick on that.

That’s all about the dough! So easy, what I said! So now we are going to hop into the filling. Actually you don’t have to use the same fillings which I used. You can make your own filling in the way you like to! Only thing what you have to do it’s you have to make the tomato sauce to the top of the pizza!

What you will need:

Tomato sauce:

– 2 pieces of garlic

– 1 jar of peeled tomatoes

– 2 tablespoon of tomatoe puree

– Pinch of salt and black pepper

1. Peel and chop the onion and the garlic. Fry the onion and the garlic with oil until them have a nice gold color. it takes like two minutes.

2. Add the tomatoes, puree and and the spices but not the oregano. Let it boil for fifteen minutes..

3. Mix it for a smooth result and season with the oregano.

Filling time♥:

1. So first put the tomato sauce on top of the pizza dough.

2. Then put your own selected ingredients what you like to use on the topping. Be sure that you have already prepared them in that way you can put them on the top like washed, chopped etc…

 

Put the pizza to the oven which is 250 degrees temperature  for 15 minutes! 

Enjoy!

So first we flew to the NYC, New York. It was my first time there (but not the least..) and I have waited for that as long as i can remember. It was amazing!♥ All the skyscrapers and billboards♥ We came to the NYC at the night time so there was so bright and colorful because the lights of the skyscrapers and billboards. We wanted so hard to see the lights and the view above so we decided to visit the Empire State Building. Like give me a minute… It was so amazing♥ Like it was love at first sight♥ After we came down and got some time to breath we also visited the Time Square. Beautiful♥

Quality is my best friend…

Next day we woke up quite early. I realized that I had a little bit of fever but we thought that it’s not gonna matter. After the breakfast we took a subway to the lower Manhattan. It was quite foggy there so we needed to take a ferry to see the Statue Of  Liberty. It looked like what I have always thought. Beautiful♥ Then we found a pretty little park where we just chilled out for a while and took few pictures. One thing I have to say.. I was amazed at the way they live : Everybody was so kindly and friendly. It seemed like that everybody knows each other. That’s why because all of the people were so open and made each other to smile. I love it!♥

Then we just walked at Manhattan and checked out one of the most famous and interesting attractions for example NYSE= New York Stock Exchange, the memorial of the WTC towers, Central park etc.. It didn’t matter where you went because it was so beautiful and amazing everywhere ♥

That was all from the New York. In the same night we flew to Puerto Rico where we stayed for three nights after we took the Caribbean cruise. So at least we visited like five different countries for example the Virgin islands, Antique and Barbuda…  Every one of them was so gorgeous and full of things to see and to understand. If you want a post about that journey too  let me know in the comments♥ See you soon!♥

With the best greetings Maria♥

3. Tear the herbs and shred the cheeses. Put it to the bowl with the other ingredients.
